GlobeView (previously known as LookOut) is a tool, where you can see your favourite web cams on one site. So you can see where the sun is shining, or where it's raining at a glance. And with the actual Version you could see a weather forecast for this location, too. There is a backend where you can administrate your webcams. The only things you need is a Webserver with PHP and MySQL database.
If you want more informations, keep on reading :-)
